The 2016 Dias Festival has come and gone and, by all accounts, was the best to date. It is estimated that approximately 35 000 people attended in which was mostly excellent weather conditions.

I would by way of this message like to thank our main sponsors, Standard Bank, the Garden Route Casino Community Trust, ATKV, the Garden Court Hotel, Santos Express, Group Editors, publishers of the Mossel Bay Advertiser, and the Independent Entrepreneurs Association of Mossel Bay for their sponsorships which once again enabled us to make entry to the festival arena free of charge.

Thank you also to every person who attended the festival – we plan to make the 2017 Dias Festival even bigger and better!
